It is said that.
And weeding required in large turnout of course it will be costly. Thinking about both the cost and quality of the grapes, there is some risk, dare adopt this method.
Also, "harvest per parcel, not the doing Geology by" is also notable. Brane-cantenac vineyards involves a varied geology, where during one parcel exists 4 different geological. For this, though the same plot, different harvest time just that.
A trial for the great wine
Without the use of the Chateau of other space for brane-cantenac, focuses on the harvest rate, small gadgets, are carrying the grape in relatively large harvest basket.
When fully ripe grapes seems to not be struck down, Peel is thicker so this capacity on.
In vineyards up to pick fruit and carries up to brewery in this way. Carried into the tank and then excluding peduncle previous election results and shredding.
That remain of peduncle defended current excluding peduncle machine is an appropriate amount, if you put a grape, that almost never.
Conversely, using capacity small gadgets, such as harvesting, small amounts at a time excluding peduncle machine when is percieved and residual thing.
After grapes into the wood and stainless-steel tanks and special equipment called "Turbo-ピジャー", while low temperature maceration.
Do the work, such as "aged" by using the 'デレスタージュ' to extract the tannins mellow by then circulates the wine alcohol fermentation in the 'able' the wine tank spot once, pulp cap to touch the air, and the Turbo ピジャー.
Using Turbo aged aged incorporated a new system from 2000.
In fact, introduced the stainless steel tank with a special aged function before 1986 were used in Burgundy, but could not be much better effect. It is to change the system from earlier than efficiently pigment, tannin extract also performed.
Alcoholic fermentation after the Peel soaked in. In 1993, then in barrels (tanks for the rest) and malolactic fermentation in new barrels for excellence in free-run wine, once used for プレスワイン.
Barrels in the malolactic fermentation started early, only the Merlot in the barrels had done so, but series of experiments, as a result, yielded results that can adjust the type of barrels or burn even Cabernet Sauvignon is more effective for the in the current also employed is likely. Barrels purchased from total 7, baking is medium. New barrel ratio is about 50-60%.
Malolactic fermentation is finished, quickly without racking the the 2 months sur lie. However does not Roussanne, ミクロビュラージュ. Total 18 months barrel maturation between racking, but occasionally and do that. Use egg whites in a traditional collage.
From favored "obscure but delicious wines" is of course also would want keep this style.
